Learn How To Sell on eBay - The Basics & Beyond

Are you looking for someone to teach you how to sell on eBay? Do you want to learn how to turn your selling 'hobby' into a business? Or how to set up an eBay Store?

Education Specialists Trained by eBay are independent contractors in your local area who can meet with you for one-on-one or group trainings. They can provide the answers to your questions and they're the only instructors who have access to the 'official' eBay training materials.

To find an Education Specialist, go to the Education Specialist Directory and type in your zip code. This will provide a list of instructors and classes that are available in your area.

If you're on Twitter, you can follow
@ebayuniversity to be notified as classes come up.

And if you're looking for a unique gift this holiday season, consider giving a gift certificate for an eBay class!
